Floor Tile Subfloor And Underlayment Preparation


Basic Construction And Carpentry Techniques Home


Tile can be laid over prepared wood, plywood and concrete floors and subfloors, and underlayment . If one room has a wood floor and the adjacent room is to be tiled, a base or underlayment is placed under the tile floor to keep it level with the wood floor. Concrete and wood subfloors are cleaned, smoothed and leveled, and their cracks and holes are filled, before tile and/or underlayment is applied. Tile is generally placed over No. 15 or 30 saturated lining felt that is bonded to the surface of a wood or plywood underlayment. Underlayment panel joints are staggered and spaced so that a 1/2 mm of expansion width, the width of a match book cover, lies between each panel. Tile is laid over the underlayment or subfloor with the joints lying midway between underlayment or subfloor joints. Underlayment panels are nailed with coated or ring grooved nails every 100 mm along the edges and face.
